10 Most Unlikely Things That Were Influenced by J.R.R. Tolkien
Amanda Yesilbas and Charlie Jane Anders

The author of The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings casts a massive, sweeping shadow over fantasy literature and entertainment. But J.R.R. Tolkien's influence spreads much further than that. Everywhere you look, you can see Tolkien's legacy: in science, in art, in language.

@tsarstepan,
Did I read somewhere that it's going to be a three part movie? How long will I have to wait to see all three chapters?

@rosborne979,
They delved into the appendices of the Lord of the Rings trilogy, and they are telling parts of the story that don't occur in the book. So while it's three movies, it covers more material than The Hobbit.

How much do you get paid for posting stuff like that? Where can I get in on some of that income?

Okay, the Fandango system gave me a minor heart attack because it took so long to put up the showtimes but I did manage to get the new HFR 3D tickets. Something that will take advantage of the 48 FPM tech that Peter Jackson used to shoot the trilogy.


List of 48 Frame Per Second theaters around the world, in case anyone wants to see the Hobbit at 48 FPS and doesn't know where to find one:
http://www.48fpsmovies.com/48-fps-theater-list/

Might want to look into online opinions first though. The 48 FPS version is a double edged sword. It makes the fast action scenes a lot better. But it also has some drawbacks that many don't like.

I'd choose to go see it in 48 FPS myself, but the nearest 48 FPS theater to me is some 200 miles away.

@oralloy,
I am somewhat dreading seeing the film in the HFR format. I have skimmed over a few 'HFR makes certain viewers ill' headlines' and have refused to go farther then that because I'm trying to remain in potential denial. I know I can get headaches and nausea while watching extended handy cam scenes and movies. I'm hoping that will not be the case for this movie.

Watching the opening 10 plus minutes of Saving Private Ryan had given me one of the worst headaches of my life. It's rare but it has happened to me about a half a dozen times while watching movies in the movie theater. Then again, I'm fine watching 3D movies and I wear eye glasses. Most people effected by 3D movies in the cinema are eye glass wearers so this alleged HFR ailment might pass me over. (((fingers are crossed)))

Most of the complaints I've seen about 48 FPS relate to making parts of the movie look fake, as if the quality of the cameras was too great for the quality of the sets.

This is a typical reaction:
http://badassdigest.com/2012/04/24/cinemacon-2012-the-hobbit-underwhelms-at-48-frames-per-secon/

But it's a tradeoff. The 3D scenes with lots of fast action will definitely benefit from the faster frame rate.

@tsarstepan,
Personally, I suspect that it's a refresh rate issue, as opposed to a shaky-cam or motion sickness issue.

The human eye can detect refresh rates up to about 60 hz. I know that older CRT monitors gave me a headache, because I could just detect the flickering at 60 hz.

@DrewDad,
I hope that's the case DrewDad. Not that I hope you get a headache from the refresh rate/resolution but that's not a motion sickness thing.

We're only (almost) 12 years into the millennium, and this is the defining event?

What a boring 988 years it's going to be....
